A student must maintain a 3.0 average (4.0 scale) during his studies. If at the end of any academic year he is below that average, he must be placed on probationary status for a semester.

All courses in the Graduate School will be graded as:

A- 4 points C- 2 points
B- 3 points D or F- 0 points

Pass of Fail in a graduate course may only be used with permission of the Graduate Committee. Courses in the Medical School taken as graduate courses must be graded on the letter system. Grades lower than C do not carry graduate credit, but are computed for the average. Courses can not be dropped unless write approval is given both by the instructor and by the Graduate faculty of the student’s major Department in a letter signed by the Graduate Advisor.
